Dow's Quintec OK'd for tomatoes in US
Dow AgroSciences has received extended US approval for its established fungicide, Quintec (quinoxyfen), for the suppression of bacterial spot (Xanthomonas spp) on tomatoes. The product has previously been used against the disease on peppers. Quintec was first approved in 2003 for the control of powdery mildews on grapevines, hops and cherries. Use has since been extended to other fruits and vegetables including cucurbits, strawberries, lettuces and artichokes.
